Last name origin & meaning:
English: habitational name from any of various places named Worth,
for example in Cheshire, Dorset, Sussex, and Kent, from Old English
worð ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’. The vocabulary word probably
survived into the Middle English period in the sense of a subsidiary
settlement dependent on a main village, and in some cases the surname
may be a topographic name derived from this use.
